Abstract

The basis of prosthetic rehabilitation and orthodontic therapy is the most accurate possible impression and representation of the clinical situation. The iTero Element is an intraoral scanner that has its roots in restorative therapy. With this device, it is not only possible to cast smaller restorations, but also complex rehabilitations of the entire jaw. In addition, it can be decided in each case whether the corresponding restoration should be fabricated chairside or labside. This also applies to bite splints, which can also be created purely digitally.

In implantology, the iTero Element offers enormous advantages in the entire workflow. From the scan for the production of a drilling template to scans during the implant surgery for immediate restoration or the production of individual gingiva formers to capturing the implant position and the emergence profile, the digital workflow offers clear advantages over analog workflows.

With the iTero Element, you have an intraoral scanner that can be used not only as a pure impression aid but also as a communication and diagnostic tool in daily practice. Caries diagnostics with NIRI technology, outcome simulations before Invisalign therapy and progress diagnostics with the TimeLapse function are tools that can be used daily in practice and expand the spectrum of diagnostics and therapy.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand why the iTero is a great restorative scanner
